“Thanks to the team’s growth, there is nothing more I want” Kim Jin-young’s reversal, reborn as the core of Shinhan Bank

Incheon Shinhan Bank faced tremendous changes ahead of the opening of the ‘Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball’. Danbi Kim (Asan Woori Bank), the top scorer in Korea, and Umji Han (BNK Some, Busan), a forward, left the team after receiving qualifications as free agents (FA). In particular, the transfer of Kim Dan-bi, who was evaluated as more than half of his power, was a huge shock.

He started the season with concerns, but by the 19th, he maintained a 50% win rate with 9 wins and 9 losses (4th place). They also won at least one win each against the top three teams, including Woori Bank, BNK, and Yongin Samsung Life Insurance. In particular, the home game on the 18th, in which the leader, Woori Bank, which was running on a 14-game winning streak, was defeated 81-78, was enough to leave a strong impact. Even in a situation where power weakening is inevitable, he somehow made a competitive squad.

At the center is Kim Jin-young (27, 176 cm), who joined Shinhan Bank this season. He played in 18 games this season and played an average of 30 minutes and 58 seconds, averaging 11.39 points, 6.28 rebounds and 2.56 assists, establishing himself as a key offensive option. After Sonia Kim (18.5 points, 8.44 rebounds), she is second in scoring and rebounding on the team. 온라인바카라

At the beginning of the transfer, he had a hard time adapting to Shinhan Bank’s new tactics. Gunadan Shinhan Bank coach also said, “Actually, (Kim) Jinyoung had difficulties in how to move, but fortunately it melted well.” Kim Jin-young confessed, “I even cried a lot during the video meeting.”

Kim Jin-young drew attention for his outstanding offense, scoring 62 points in one game while at Soongui Girls’ High School, but did not stand out much in Cheongju KB Stars, his first professional team. He averaged 12 minutes and 16 seconds in the 2017-2018 season as his most played time. It was a ‘God’s move’ that he transferred to BNK ahead of the 2019-2020 season. During BNK, he consistently played more than 20 minutes and raised his average score to 8.73 points (2021-2022 season), and this season Shinhan Bank is showing his potential.

The unique bright energy is also the charm of Kim Jin-young. Coach Koo said, “Jinyoung has integrated into our team a lot, and thanks to that, our team is also growing. He has nothing more to ask for.”

He’s having his best season, but he’s not resting on his laurels. Kim Jin-young said, “It seems to have permeated the team because I followed it happily and happily.” I got a good result when I matched them one by one,” he said with a broad smile.
